FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DONT KNOW,THIS IS MY HOMETOWN...SPRINGFIELD MASS!

The tragic suicide of a Springfield 11-year old was the topic of discussion Tuesday on the CNN show, Anderson Cooper 360. The segment touched on Carl's reported bullying and discussed 
the taunts and threats from other students at New Leadership Charter School, who made fun of him, insulted the way he dressed and called him gay.

His mother, Sirdeaner L. Walker, has said since her son's death that, despite constant contact with the school regarding her son's bullying, nothing was done to stop it.

Walker-Hoover hanged himself at his Springfield home April 6 after complaining of bullying by classmates. His mother, Sirdeaner L. Walker, was interviewed on the program, which is followed by a discussion of childhood bullying with Thomas Krever of the Hetrick-Martin Institute in Manhattan.
